Hyperhidrosis: Excessive Sweating Treatment

Sweating is a natural process, but for some, it becomes excessive and disruptive, impacting daily life. This condition, known as hyperhidrosis, can cause annoyance, embarrassment, and sometimes social anxiety.

Hyperhidrosis affects 1% of the population, and Hamilton Skin Clinic have medical professionals who can help.

The Science Behind the Light

What sets IPL apart from its predecessors, particularly traditional cosmetic lasers, is its unique approach. Traditional lasers use a single, focused wavelength to target specific issues. In contrast, IPL therapy boasts a broader spectrum of light, with each wavelength designed to address different layers and issues within the skin. This approach allows IPL to tackle a wider range of issues, from pigmentation to vascular irregularities, and even unwanted hair removal. This versatility, coupled with its precision, has truly changed the landscape of skin health, delivering transformative results for individuals worldwide.

When Sweating Becomes Excessive

Sweating is necessary for temperature regulation, but with hyperhidrosis, it becomes uncontrollable. Common signs include

Excessive underarm sweat

axillary hyperhidrosis

Slippery, sweaty palms

palmar hyperhidrosis

Clammy feet

plantar hyperhidrosis

Facial sweating

craniofacial hyperhidrosis

Primary vs. Secondary Hyperhidrosis

There are two main types of hyperhidrosis

Primary Hyperhidrosis

This is the most common form, often genetic and not caused by an underlying medical condition. It typically affects hands, feet, or underarms.

Secondary Hyperhidrosis

This less common type arises from another medical condition, medication, or hormonal changes. It can affect larger areas of the body.

I had my first ever cosmetic appointment with Nurse Jo 29/09 and I am so happy with the service. My results are still settling but I could see the difference within a week (really happy). I was really nervous but Nurse Jo provided so much information and options, I felt like I was being listened to. Thank you so much Nurse Jo!! Really appreciated the experience & support.

I went to Jo feeling nervous and uncertain of what I wanted after being sent away by another clinic who had no idea! She immediately knew what to do to transform me. No messing around, careful, honest and kind. I’ve woken up a new woman so grateful to have been led by a lady with experience and skill.

I booked an appointment for lip fillers and masseter Botox. My lips were severely asymmetrical so I went to Nurse Jo to have them corrected and could not be happier with the results. I would highly recommend Hamilton Skin Clinic and without a doubt attest to Nurse Jo being the top cosmetic injector in Brisbane. Could not be more grateful!

Couldn’t recommend more! Jo is an exceptional Nurse. She has such an in depth knowledge of what she does and as someone who is new to cosmetic treatments, has always made me feel comfortable and empowered me to make informed decisions by taking the time to explain how everything works. Jo tailors what she does to suit my face and offers alternative approaches to achieving the outcome that I’m wanting. I’ve never felt pressured by her to adjust or get a treatment I wasn’t comfortable with and the results that she creates always exceed my expectations. If you’re looking somewhere to get your next cosmetic treatment that offers friendly and approachable customer service, expertise and will yield amazing results, then look no further than Hamilton Skin Clinic.

OMG I loved this experience so much I wanted to marry Jo…. from the moment I met Jo she was very friendly professional and caring. I’m 77 years old never had any treatments like this and what a difference when I looked in the mirror I loved the softness of my skin and the very slight lift Jo has achieved. Highly recommend Harbour medispa…..

As a total novice I was terrified of looking.obviously done up. I was convinced subtlety couldn't really be achieved. I was so nervous about the results of my lip filler looking obvious against my soft features, but Jo worked genuine wonders. The result was believable, soft and subtle, a far cry from the protruding, stretched out lips I was desperate to avoid. I didn't think filler would be for me so I am particularly surprised by how confident I now feel, totally unafraid to see the people I know and love. Thank you, Jo!

Finding Relief

If you suspect hyperhidrosis, consulting a dermatologist, or an experienced cosmetic doctor or nurse is crucial. At Hamilton Skin Clinic, we have hyperhidrosis experts who can diagnose the condition and recommend the best course of treatment. Here are some potential options:

  • Prescription-strength antiperspirants
  • Iontophoresis therapy
  • Neuromodulator injections
  • Medications (in some cases)

How Injections Work for Hyperhidrosis

Botulinum toxin neuromodulators work by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that stimulate sweat glands. Here’s the process

1. Consultation

A medical professional will assess your hyperhidrosis, discuss your medical history, and determine if botulinum toxin is a suitable option.

2. Preparation

The injection area is typically cleaned and numbed with a topical anesthetic cream to minimise discomfort.

3. Injection

Using a very fine needle, we inject tiny amounts of the medicine into specific points in the targeted area (e.g., underarms, palms).

4. Recovery

After the injection, you can resume most activities right away.

Additional Considerations


Studies show you can significantly reduce sweating by 82–87% in the treated areas


The effects typically last 3-6 months. Repeat injections are needed to maintain reduced sweating.

Side Effects

In some cases, temporary side effects like minor bruising, swelling, or temporary muscle weakness at the injection site can occur. However, these are usually mild and resolve quickly.
